March and Rallies News

Join us at the May Day march and rally on 4 May

We encourage all branch members to join us at the Aberdeen Trades Union Council (ATUC) May Day march and rally on Saturday 4th May 2024 to celebrate International Workers’ Day.

Marchers will gather at Rubislaw Terrace at 11.00am, to march off at 11.30am down Union Street, led by the beats of the Guarana Drummers.

In a change of route, the march will then proceed down Union Terrace and up Schoolhill to Broad Street.

A rally will be held in the Castlegate from 12 noon where we will hear from a range of speakers from trade unions and community groups.

ATUC Vice President, and branch Labour Link rep, Kathleen Kennedy, who will chair the rally said, “As councils again face unprecedented cuts to their budgets, and citizens of the North East struggle with the cost of living crisis, it has never been more important that we stand together in solidarity.

“Workers face cuts to terms and conditions and increasing pressures in the workplace and at the same time, communities are faced with the impact of cuts that will undermine their living standards and quality of life. ”

“It has never been more important to support all these struggles. They are all linked and collective action is our strength. A win for one is a win for all.”
